What our clients say...!!


Dear Captain Josh,

I just wanted to thank you again for everything. You helped make my early fathers day gift a success. I learned more from you in 10 minutes then I have in an entire day on the lake with any other guide. Your patience with my Father and I was applauded. It was joy to be out on the river with you and would definitly come back again!

Thanks Again,
Justin Lemly

The trip of March 19th  on the Chick

Dear Capt. Josh,

I am taking this time to write and thank you for the excellent day of fishing you showed me and my grandson Tyler. Tyler's first 16 lb. catfish will forever leave a long lasting impression in his mind. For all the other 20 to 30 lb. fish caught that day, the very first one stands out in an eleven year old little boys mind the most. The 66 lb. 2 oz. catfish I caught as the day was winding down put the icing on the cake. Your boat was nice and comfortable. It was enjoyable to be on . The kindness you showed Tyler did not go unnoticed. Thank you again for an outstanding day.

Hooking up with Captain Josh of River Cat'n Notoriety, proved to be a can't fail solution for catching big Blue Cats for Lauren, Derek, and Charles Leake on July 15, 2010. The Leakes caught 17 jumbo fish, ranging in weights from 30 lbs. to 64.7 lbs. caught by Derek, sister Lauren and Dad, Charles. All the Leakes beat their previous best's of other trips and had a truly great and memorable trip. Lauren had the nights best of 43 lbs until Derek hooked his 64.7 lbs. cat. Captain Josh was truly the ultimate professional guide, and was not the least bit reluctant to tell us where and why we fished and different set-ups.

Captain Josh,

I wanted to send a big thank you for taking myself and my kids fishing on July 24. I have fished with other guide services but none equal the time and patience you showed. It was over 100 degrees and you never failed. We caught several citations and were treated to a first class trip. Rivercat'n should be proud of the service you provide and the reputation you have. If anyone is looking for a trip of your life then you should look no farther and give Josh a call. I will be using his services again.

Thanks again,
Randy Mathers and family


Hello Captain Josh.

We wanted to take a moment to thank you for the FABULOUS time that we had yesterday on your charter boat. The whole experience was memorable. Of course there were a couple of 'highlights' that we will tell for years to come (ie: our son's 'love' for the catfish and the 'storm at sea'). You are by far the best at what you do and we commend you for that.

The catfish we caught were amazing! You are very knowledgeable, caring, patient, and professional. We had a lot of laughs and a lot of tears- oh wait, that was the rain on our faces. :) We definitely want to have you charter another trip for us up in the holler in the near future- we can't wait to go back. We will be sending out invitations soon for Michael's upcoming wedding, he hopes you will be able to attend, we will have a lot of food. :)

Again- thanks for a great time! We will highly recommend you to anyone who wants a fishing experience of a lifetime.

Hi, Capt. Josh,

I am Michael Webb's wife Billie Jean and mother to Jarod. I just wanted to thank you for giving the men in my life a great fishing experience this week. Jarod has still not stopped talking about it. We are getting the pictures printed this week. He wants to take them to school after spring break is over for show and tell. My husband is almost as bad. He loves seeing Jarod enjoy himself. My two guys are two peas in a pod.

We will defiantly be back. We will also be spreading the word and giving out your web address. Jarod is watching for his picture on your web site. I have been told I have to print it for his fishing and hunting scrap book we started a few years back.

Thanks again for a memory my guys will never forget. Hope to see you again soon. Billie Jean, Michael, Audrey and Jarod - AKA Little Man


Josh, I wanted to drop you a big thank you for Thursday Night's trip. Myself and my two buddies, Erik and Chris had the time of our life. Almost every fish we caught was the biggest fish we had ever caught. It got to the point where 30+ pounders were just another nice fish. The 50+ pounder and sheer number of fish over 30 pounds still amazes me. Great , great trip.

Anyone thinking about chasing big cats needs to call Captain Josh. I've been out fishing with others and had plenty of good trips, but this guy stands head and shoulders above anyone else I have fished with. Give him a call, you'll be impressed with his knowledge, skill, and professionalism.

Mike, Erik, and Chris
